camping with family

We had so much fun this past weekend with Becca, Skye, Granny and the kiddos. We met up in Tillamook and spent three days camping and exploring the area. We already miss being with them (they left this morning) and hope we get to do something again SOON! 

(Disclaimer: This is a VERY long post because we took so many pictures!)

We started Thursday night, by finding a random spot to camp where it was pretty secluded. We set up tents, and made a bed for granny in the back of our car and called it good! Becca and Skye had prepared foil dinners for us earlier in the day, so we started cookin' them right away. MMmmm MMMmmm!

 Friday was LOADED with fun. First we packed up and headed to the beach.

Then on to the air museum...

Next was the Tillamook Cheese Factory. It was amazing because we sampled cheeses and ice cream, PLUS had the best lunch there. Mmmm...SO DELISH!

Then Skye called a friend of his and we were able to get the tour of a local dairy farm...

Getting tired yet? Next stop--Pacific City for some bocce ball and playin' in the sand!

After the beach we were all exhausted! We finished the day with some Mexican food, drove to Lincoln City where we set up camp, had smores around the campfire and crashed for the night. 

The next morning we went for one last day at the beach and it was FREEZING. Still, that did not stop the boys from touching the water.

Aaaannnddd....that concludes our weekend fun! We are so happy to be blessed with such awesome family. We are thankful for our freedom to be with them, to worship how we choose, to follow opportunities we are given, and to live life to the fullest! What a great weekend.

  1. Sarah! Miss you! We had so much fun with y'all!! Can you tell my boys LOVE ice cream? check out those smiles, ha! Thanks for the good times. I can't believe we didn't get a pic of our sweet camping spot the second night, but I guess we did have plenty of pics already. Great post! Love you!
